is it forbidden to climb? If it is unstable, perhaps it should also be forbidden to stand under!
I think it's not stable enough indeed. And I think when it's allowed to many people try to climb it. It's also a world heritage monument.
Where is this formation? And what is it's name? I'm wondering if it should be included in the Südpfalz Page which stretches across the border into Alsace / Vosges. This formation also already is on French ground.
When you push the blue coordinates under my picture you can see the exact location. It near Waldeck, and that is near Bitche. It looks indeed like Sudpfalz. I think it the same geological area. In my album is a picture taken from the side. I never saw a stranger rock like this in my life. I found it in a dutch travel guide, and never saw it in another guide.
The name is Erbenfelsen.
I looked on the maps of your pages, and yes indeed. Its just over the border.
Also in that area is Le Grand Steinberg. It's like a big red ship. It's in the Forest of Hanau.
been some glaciers moving through this area at one time, to create such an unusual formation!
